Rokas Giedraitis: 'I had a couple of NBA offers'

Baskonia was the latest team of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague holding its season-opening Media Day. Rokas Giedraitis was asked about his decision to stay part of the team coached by Dusko Ivanovic. “During the summer, I was able to think about my situation, what I wanted,” he noted, “I had a couple of NBA offers, but I talked with my family and we decided to stay here.”
Rokas Giedraitis: Of course I want to play in the NBA. I want to try to be there. A couple of years ago I had said that I can fit well in some NBA teams. But, in basketball, there’s hard work and some part of luck. I think time will show. I have a lot of job to do right now, so I don’t think about the NBA now. Every kid who plays basketball wants to try out for the NBA.
